DWG to DXF, missing lines when plotting.


Recommended Posts

Guys, I had to re-scale a drawing and convert it to DXF so we can use in our cutting machine. The problem is when I try to open the DXF file on our factory computer there are missing some lines. But when I open the file on my computer, it is perfect. Do you guys now if this is a AutoCAD error when converting the file to DXF or its a problem with our factory's computer ?

What is your cutting machine? Software?


Sometimes you need to use R12 DXF.


Hard to say exactly without seeing your .dwg and .dxf.

What version did you save the dxf in?


Easiest way to check the dxf would be to simply open it with AutoCAD, but like SLW210 said you probably need to save it as an older version. R12 is the oldest version available in current AutoCAD. DWG TrueView may be able to save an older version.
